Do to the best interest of the riders, teams, and the race series, the November to be announced event has been canceled. Congrats to the 2014 champions, number one plates will be awarded at the AMA banquet in January. The AMA Supermoto staff has already shifted their focus to 2015 and plan to have a six race schedule released within the weeks to come. 2015 will bring new excitement to the AMA Supermoto National Championship, along with the return of already established success of the 2014 season.
Gage McAllister won the Open Pro class Championship, Sean Butterman won the Lites Championship and Mike Surratt is the Amateur National Champion.
Matt Winstanley on his Honda became the 450 Elite British Supermoto champion for 2014 with one round still to go as he now has a lead in the championship that can’t be overhauled by his nearest rivals.
So with three wins from three starts Winstanley was the overall winner and the new champion, with Hodgson second and Blakeman third, with Smith, Cornish and Todd filling the next three places.
In the Open Elite class it was again Winstanley followed by Todd and Hodgson with Cornish fourth despite his fall. The Open Elite championship will be the championship now to be decided at the final round next month.

Team Germany were back on the box in third.
With fifteen of the twenty-one teams already qualified for the SMoN, there was still one last chance to make the main event, via the B Final on Sunday morning, where just one team place was up for grabs. All three riders from the remaining six non-qualified teams took to the grid and it was Belgium who came through with the lowest score, just five points from the first and fourth positions of Romain Kaivers and Jean Marc Gaillard. The sixth place from the third rider Sebastien Bouillon was not needed and so Belgium will line up for the SMoN.
The teams that failed to qualify were Sweden Junior, Estonia, Great Britain Junior, Latvia and Russia.
